    replacing a failed motherboard in an ESXi server with an almost-the-same-but-not-quite model. A s/h one where the seller neglected to reset the IMPI for bonus points.

    3-4 hours I'll never get back.

    In a previous job, the password to the password key system was a whole verse from jabberwocky.

    Currently getting a little bit sad watching the GN livestream where they're going to dick around with my old motherboard.

    My first foray into modding and watercooling. God I want to get better and get on some proper modding so bad. Or anything besides sitting on my arse all the God damn time!

    Just remembered I was going to try and supplement my loss of earnings while off sick by begging twitch streaming for donations and I can't face the real world and real jobs just give me money Patreon. Must have played at least 150 hours of division 2 in that time. No idea if I would have made anything but was gonna try, set up a kitty cam and make Ralph and Alphonso the real stars, cause I sure as hell ain't nothing pretty to look at.

    Oh and I had a to do list. Let's see I did.... 2 'and a bit' things out of 5 in the list. Not bad. Or at least it might not have been if the 2 fully completed items weren't watching the latest series of archer and rewatching all of Rick and morty :rollingeyes:

    Also I can't sleep because my misses is currently experiencing breathing difficulties of a mucus nature and sounds like if darth vader and a garbage disposal unit had a baby together.

    Ah no mate, you've made the same mistake i have.

    Apparently the ladies in our lives never snore, no matter what. It's impossible apparently, it's all in our heads and we're big meanies for even suggesting such a thing...:happy:

    Bit late, but the secret to a successful flat-packed adventure is to start with a beer (or other alcoholic beverage of choice) and for the assembly to only involve only 1 person wherever possible. Another may be called upon to hold things in place if necessary, but may not offer "advice". I usually enlist the help of a few boxes rather than human assistance.

    My ex wife used to sound like a bloody dump valve. She'd stop breathing momentarily then go PSCHHHHHH. Used to scare the crap out of me.

    I can't say I miss it.

    More time for beverages :grin:

    I had to sit idly by while my brother in law took 2 evenings to assemble an ikea wardrobe. 2 evenings! I'd have it done in half hour max once all unpacked and wiped down. :dremel:

    2 evenings? How is that even possible?

    Was he following the Swedish instructions or something?

    I really don't know. Must have taken him an hour to pin the backing on. I was told to leave him and not say anything. And he comes from a family of builders! :hehe:

    I've seen a kitchen as in cabinets installed entirely with nmn, but plumbing? As in the joints? In water pipes? :eyebrow: I hope it's not all boxed in so he can keep an eye on it. Or maybe just watch for a dark patch on the ceiling under the bathroom.

    Other people's noise, mess, habits. There's a reason you move out and get away from family and having to live with other people again is really grating on me.
